Ed Koch’s last question: “Do you miss me?”

This is pretty great. The New York Times got the former mayor to sit down for a video obit. Anyone who wonders why this guy was so special will get a wonderful answer here.

And to your question, Mr. Mayor: yes.  My wife caught me blinking back tears this morning when I heard WCBS radio interviewing various New Yorkers about his life and legacy.  “Damn allergies,” I said.  “Gotta take a Zyrtec…”

At about the 16 minute mark he talks poignantly and lovingly about Cardinal O’Connor.  Sweet.
